Abstract

Sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) is a drought tolerant crop. In the Central zone of Oltenia region, drought is a common phenomenon and this is the reason why this crop should be reconsidered for cultivation in the future within this area. The present paper presents the behaviour of 6 sorghum grain hybrids (from Australia and USA) in the soil and clime conditions of ARDS Simnic (Dolj). The experiment was laid out in randomized block
design with spacing of 70 x 10 cm along with three replications. There have been made observations and remarks n the main phenophases of the crop, the morphological features and the grain yield as well as the correlation between them. The highest yields have been recorded with the NS 5305, NS 7501 and NS 5304 which are considered early as
vegetation period.
